The purpose of this study is to determine if 1) a continuous glucose monitoring system can measure glucose levels in transferred tissue during reconstructive surgery, and 2) if glucose measurements from a continuous glucose monitoring system correlate with tissue blood perfusion.

A simple device that objectively assesses flap perfusion - either as a stand-alone tool or an adjunct to the current monitoring method - would be a tremendous improvement in detection of e...
During surgery and after surgery elevated blood glucose levels can lead to poor outcome such as wound infections. Current technology does not allow close monitoring of glucose levels often...
The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and accuracy of the Real-Time Continuous Glucose monitoring System (RT-CGMS)in measuring glucose in patients scheduled for surgery; bef...
Real-time continuous glucose monitoring system (CGMS) has been attempted to be used in ICU, but its feasibility, accuracy and confounding factors are controversial.
The purpose of this clinical investigation is to evaluate the effectiveness of modified Sensor designs on the longevity (up to 180 days) of the Senseonics Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CG...
Electroplating of nanoporous Pt (nPt) induces an extremely strong tensile stress, which results in the exfoliation of nPt on flexible polymer substrate despite plasma treatment to improve adhesion. He...
Tight glycemic control using intermittent blood glucose measurements is associated with a risk of hypoglycemia. Glucose concentrations can now be measured near continuously (every 5-15 min). We assess...
Glucose variability (GV) remains a key limiting factor in the success of diabetes management. While new technologies, for example, accurate continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) and connected insulin de...
Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) is increasingly used in the management of diabetes in children and adults, but there are few data regarding its use in neonates. The purpose of this article is to d...
A procedure whereby the body is stimulated to generate extra soft tissue by the application of stretching forces that stimulate new growth of tissue which, over a period of time, results in a 2-dimensional expansion of the tissue. The procedure is used in reconstructive surgery for injuries caused by trauma, burns, or ablative surgery. Various types of TISSUE EXPANSION DEVICES have been developed that exert stretching forces.
Physiologic or biochemical monitoring of the fetus. It is usually done during LABOR, OBSTETRIC and may be performed in conjunction with the monitoring of uterine activity. It may also be performed prenatally as when the mother is undergoing surgery.
The continuous measurement of physiological processes, blood pressure, heart rate, renal output, reflexes, respiration, etc., in a patient or experimental animal; includes pharmacologic monitoring, the measurement of administered drugs or their metabolites in the blood, tissues, or urine.
Self evaluation of whole blood glucose levels outside the clinical laboratory. A digital or battery-operated reflectance meter may be used. It has wide application in controlling unstable insulin-dependent diabetes.
Simultaneous and continuous monitoring of several parameters during sleep to study normal and abnormal sleep. The study includes monitoring of brain waves, to assess sleep stages, and other physiological variables such as breathing, eye movements, and blood oxygen levels which exhibit a disrupted pattern with sleep disturbances.
